The philosophy of the Cretan Diet has always relied on ingredient seasonality, freshness and limited processing of all raw materials.
At Elisa Villa, we embrace this philosophy in order to offer ingredients and flavors of high nutritional value, inextricably linked to the famous gastronomical heritage of the region.
Some of the Cretan diet integral components are extra virgin olive oil, local dairy produce and fresh fruit and vegetables.
